Akroyd’s Sonoma wine will sell for about $20 a bottle when released, which dovetails nicely with his website’s statement that it is “made from 100% snob-free grapes.” Having met many a Sonoma County winegrape grower, I can vouch for the truth in that.
Per the Steve Berger story:
“He could have gone to Napa,” said John-Charles Boisset, owner of De Loach, but noted that the style of wine he wanted to make suited the soils and climate of Sonoma a lot better.
That style means with great fruit and balance and lower-then-popular alcohols.
Quiz time- what other celebs are making wine in Sonoma County? Winner wins something delightful…
Buy wine from this man. You can pair it with “the whole bass”:
